These are images from my second roll of self developed film. However, I did cheat and get these scanned at Walgreens instead of scanning them myself. This was the roll that was in the tank when it cracked open, but luckily they weren't ruined (even though the entire lab now smells like fixer).
These are my favorite images from the first roll of film I shot, developed, scanned, and edited by myself. It took me almost an hour to open and spool the film- I don't recommend an industrial can opener to open up a roll, ha. Overall I'm extremely pleased with how these came out.
Since my last post, I've learned how to develop my own film and developed two rolls. I will share some of those images in their own post.
I've also continued to work on anthotypes and photosynthesis prints, but the lack of sunlight has made it very slow work. Considering there is already snow on the ground, it looks like I'll be investing in a UV lamp soon.
In the coming weeks I hope to work on mixed media projects, mostly having to do with creative matting, stacked prints, and distressing.
I also just found out from my photography teacher that I need to start doing drawing exercises to suplement my portfolio and to prepare me for college. Since I know absolutely nothing about drawing, this is a little daunting. I hope that it will positively influence my artist skills, though.

In person, the image is much more prominent.
